Despite Joshua Penrose having given up pirating years earlier, some elements of the Braeden Navy still looked for an opportunity to fulfil the twenty year old warrant from their queen to hang the pirate. On a leisure spaceflight, Joshua and his wife were captured and hanged without trial. His family, now led by his eldest son, Harmon, want the officers responsible to stand trial. Braeden refuses to give them up. Along with his sister and four brothers, they take the fight to Braeden.
